Cool Videos: Hulk and Ant-Man battle over a can of Coke

4 hours ago | | See recent JoBlo news »

Unfortunately it's likely that we won't get to see any sort of interaction between Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) until Avengers: Infinity War, but thanks to a Coca-Cola Super Bowl commercial, we get a small taste of their shenanigans to enjoy. It's likely that you've already seen this commercial for carbonated sugar water, but now Coca-Cola has released the spot online for... Read More »

Oscar Telecast Will Be ‘Most Diverse Ever,’ Says Producer at Luncheon

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This year’s Oscar show “will be the most diverse ever,” producer David Hill told Variety on Monday at the Oscar nominees luncheon. Despite the lack of acting nominees of color — which the Academy has no control over — Hill and fellow Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin have been working since September to make sure the Oscars “will have true diversity and will represent what the world looks like.”

The remarks were made at the 35th annual event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Hudlin said that an Oscar nomination is “an amazing moment in the life of any nominee,” and that the lunch is intended to celebrate their accomplishments.

They agreed that it’s crucial for the entire film industry to attain inclusion, but there is also room to celebrate the great film work of 2015, which been somewhat overshadowed in the past month. Or, as Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences »

Macklemore, Hillary, and Why White Privilege Is Everyone’s Burden

9 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For the duration of January 2016, it was the foremost topic of conversation. Seemingly each day meant another story about white privilege in the news. Watching this happen is exciting, but also overwhelming in the way it is whenever a new idea is introduced to the mainstream. From DeRay Mckesson teaching Stephen Colbert about the concept on The Late Show to Mark Ruffalo considering a boycott of this year’s very white Academy Awards on the basis of said privilege, it’s seeping into most corners of society, and quickly. The chatter has continued into February, most notably around how brash black and white quarterbacks are judged differently, in both success and failure. White privilege even made its way into the presidential race, when Hillary Clinton was asked in a forum what white privilege means to her and how she’s benefited from it. Clinton’s response could be described as “a collection of words. »

Hulk And Ant-Man Duke It Out For Coca-Cola In New Captain America: Civil War Promo Clip

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Trust Disney and Marvel to showcase the biggest of the bunch during last night’s Super Bowl promotional ad – and we’re not just talking in terms of production budget. Unleashing Bruce Banner’s barnstorming alter-ego, the studio’s promo for Captain America: Civil War – and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general, really – features Hulk and Ant-Man duking it out over a can of Coke.

Coke Mini, to be exact, allowing for Paul Rudd’s diminutive superhero to leap into Banner’s lab and sneakily extract the precious soft drink. It just so happens to be Bruce’s last can and, well, you know what he says about always being angry.

Every Movie Trailer From Super Bowl 50 Ranked From Worst To Best

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel/Warner Bros. Pictures/20th Century Fox/Paramount Pictures

I’ve never seen a game of American Football but boy do I love the Super Bowl. At time other than San Diego in July do you get to see so many glimpses of exciting upcoming movies in one go, and in this case you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. Just as the Half-Time Show is as big a draw for some as the match itself, for movie fans the real thrill of this American pasttime is a slew of thirty-second trails

Sometimes it winds up being a non-event, with previous trailer footage trotted out with a couple of new shots, but this year was a knockout. Maybe it was because this is the 50th Super Bowl, or perhaps it has something to do with there being several big movies we haven’t had fresh »

Watch The Hulk Chase Down Ant-Man In Coke Mini Commercial

7 February 2016 5:26 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Given that Mark Ruffalo.s Hulk won.t be appearing in Joe and Anthony Russo.s Captain America: Civil War it may be a while before we get to see him interact with Paul Rudd.s Ant-Man on the big screen. That being said, if curious what that relationship would look like, you just need to watch the brand new Coke commercial that aired during the Super Bowl today: It doesn.t appear as though the folks at Coca-Cola were able to wrangle Mark Ruffalo for a cameo in this fun little superhero-filled spot, but that.s definitely Paul Rudd providing the voice of the can-heisting Scott Lang, and the people behind the making of the commercial deserve a good deal of credit for representing the two Marvel heroes pretty fantastically. What we see in the spot is very clearly the same Ant-Man from the solo movie last »

2016 Oscar Previews: Part 1

7 February 2016 5:11 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 88th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 28th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

Hulk Vs. Ant-Man in Coke Mini Super Bowl Commercial

7 February 2016 5:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a number of press outlets were sent a promotional set of Coca-Cola cans featuring Marvel characters such as Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Many assumed that this was a promotion for Captain America: Civil War, although we know that Hulk isn't featured in that movie. These cans actually tease a Marvel/Coca-Cola Super Bowl 50 ad, which isn't for Captain America: Civil War at all, but does feature both Hulk and Ant-Man going toe-to-toe.

As it turns out, there's a good reason Hulk was featured in these new collectable Coke cans, since he's stars in this ad, along with Paul Rudd's Ant-Man. This humorous 60-second commercial shows how angry Hulk gets when people steal his Coca-Cola, and it also presents an interesting dynamic since these characters are by far »

Santa Barbara Film Fest: ‘Spotlight’ Honorees Argue That Movies Can Make a Difference

7 February 2016 12:05 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Three of the principal members of the best ensemble Screen Actors Guild Award winner Spotlight were honored with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s American Riviera Award on Friday night at the city’s historic Arlington Theatre. Two of them, Michael Keaton and best supporting actress Oscar nominee Rachel McAdams, were in attendance for the celebration, while the third, best supporting actor Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo, was a late cancelation due to a family issue (but sent in a video expressing his apologies and appreciation).

It was an emotional evening in which the thesis of all involved parties — including Sbiff festival director Roger Durling, who moderated a two-hour Q&A that preceded the presentation of the awards themselves — was that films can change the world. This was supported by the fact that Spotlight, a film about Boston’s Catholic Church sex abuse scandal »

‘Big Short’ Director Adam McKay at DGA Panel: ‘I Love Controlled Chaos’

6 February 2016 3:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The five directors contending for the top award at the Directors Guild of America stressed the uncertainties of their craft at Saturday morning’s annual “Meet the Nominees” panel at the DGA Theater.

Stanley Kubrick said it’s like trying to write a poem on a roller coaster,” noted “The Revenant” director Alejandro Inarritu in desrcribing the process of finishing a film.

In his case, the Mexican director had to start editing before he had shot the ending, due to the production lacking snow in Canada. That forced him to shoot the final scenes in South America.

“I’m a chronic unsatisfied person,” he added. “The editing of this film was torture.”

The Big Short” director Adam McKay explained that his film — which features extensive use of actors breaking the fourth wall — reflected his belief that the comedy required that technique to reflect the strangeness of the 2008 global economic collapse. »

Second Opinion – Spotlight (2015)

6 February 2016 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spotlight, 2015.

Directed by Tom McCarthy.

Starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and Stanley Tucci.


A true story documenting the events that led to The Boston Globe uncovering a history of child molestation covered up by the local Catholic Archdiocese.

Featured in the 2013 Blacklist as one of the “most liked” unmade scripts of that year, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that Josh Singer’s script finally had the chance to debut its true potential with the inclusion of an all-star cast. Tom McCarthy’s Oscar nominated film Spotlight is a classically well-made film in the sense that it demonstrates how a strongly supported narrative that drives the interest of the audience to the credits, works in unison with captivating performances that bring the real traits and mannerisms of the people they aim to portray to life, without relying on special effects, clichés or overly dramatic scenes. »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

5 February 2016 6:19 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  The best actress race seems downright obvious compared to the wild, wild waters of best supporting actor, where Golden Globe winner Sylvester Stallone isn't a lock for the Oscar in the slightest. Stallone's biggest threat might be Tom Hardy, the up-and-coming icon who had his best year yet thanks to "Mad Max," "Legend" and "The Revenant." While these two seem like the ones to beat, it's important to not that Stallone missed out on the SAG nomination, leaving the door potentially open for Mark Rylance and Christian Bale.

The Incredible Story of Spotlight's Phil Saviano: The Child Sex Abuse Survivor Who Refused to Be Silenced by the Catholic Church

5 February 2016 6:05 AM, PST | | See recent news »

He no longer belongs to any sort of organized religion, but Phil Saviano, whose pivotal role in exposing the child sex abuse scandal within the Catholic Church is showcased in the Oscar-nominated film Spotlight, appears to have had something almost like divine intervention on his side. For instance, if he hadn't been flipping through The Boston Globe looking for last minute Christmas presents in December of 1992, he might have never stumbled across a report that the priest who raped him as a child was arrested for doing the same thing to two boys in New Mexico.
